hearing democrats only unfortunately republicans would not participate on medicare and how medicare is affected by the ryan/romney budget to sever the medicare guarantee. they didn't want to participate in that. they don't want to -- we're supposed to be in session this week, but they've canceled it rather than passing a middle income tax cut, passing a jobs bill, passing the violence against women act, passing the farm bill, any of those things. but yet they have time to say we want information when they know it's premature. >> so you're saying this is political from their position? >> one might suspect that. >> that's what i hear you saying. >> one might suspect that. >> let's talk about other political stuff going on. a new romney campaign ad. i'm going to play a clip because you're prominently featured in this ad. watch this. >> who will raise taxes on the middle class? barack obama and the liberals already have. to pay for government-run health care, you'll pay higher taxes and more for your medicine. and their plan includes $1 trillion in higher classes even on the middle clas
to him. as you know, chris, carter was right, he had opposed medicare at the start, but when reagan said, there you go again, it actually sort of discounted everything else that carter had said in that debate. so they've got to be organic, they've got to be natural, they've got to be real. i think everybody at least in the political class who has seen this report is going to be watching the debate to see if we can sort of tick off, oh, that was the prepared zinger. did he bring it off? >> oh, yeah. >> the other thing is he's not very good at this. i mean, you know, i know they don't want him to be spontaneous because he'll say the wrong thing, but delivering a prepared funny line seems to me to be one of the hardest tasks, probably even harder than telling us what's in his tax plan. >> as a journalist, joan, i want your view. suppose you're watching the debate, as we all will be, everybody is going to be watching wednesday night, and you see what is obviously a prefab zinger that doesn't even sound like romney. it's more of a wisecrack which he's not particularly good at, something i wou
of americans, the polling shows ryan's pick add medicare at front and center, especially in florida -- he has a problem -- >> i'm not arguing that. >> i don't think he's going to be able to avoid. i think you are going to get some substance. i think you need to get some personality. you need to get some spontaneity. i'm not sure either of these two guys is good at spontaneity. if you can fix spontaneity, you've achieved success in politics. >> here's one good piece of news for romney. whatever's happening in sort of the inside washington game, i saw a poll today, i think it was abc news said, 52% of americans expect obama to win. something like 25%, 30% expect romney to win. with the viewers, may not not -- maybe they won't all be watching. >> skewed polls. >> christie is saying, everything will change wednesday. everything will change. >> let me see what obama needs to be. obama has to make sure that he doesn't come off as sort of arroga arrogant, who are you to question me, the president of the united states? that never works. they are now equals in the eyes of the american people. >> you m
medicare. you might as well say good-bye to it. yeah, and i don't know if you've done any research on obama or not, but he is a muslim. he is -- got a socialistic view on the, you know, economy, the government, the whole nine yards. if he had his way, we'd be a socialistic country. okay. really do. pay attention to fox news. >> a volunteer for the clay county republican party in florida made a series of calls on behalf of her preferred candidate, one of those calls got caught on an answering machine and then it got played on a local radio station wmnf and then it got picked up on gawker and now this is part of the romney campaign messaging, too. just like the yacht thing. the leader of the clay county, florida, republicans, for what it's worth, says the volunteer was off script completely. on making those remarks. yeah, you think? joining us now is chris hayes, host of the msnbc weekend morning show "up with chris hayes." he's the author of "twilight of the elites." thanks for being here. >> it's great to be here. >> i want to ask you about the obama care decision specifically. so, romney d
